When she was 80 years old, Ruth Kahn, from Trumansburg, New York and her daughter, Hannah from San Francisco, California joined 4 other women already in Costa Rica to spend Christmas Eve hiking the tallest mountain in Costa Rica. Ruth is shown here with their guide, Roxana Arroya, a lawyer, lover of nature, poet, and well known athlete in Costa Rica who led the trip which included 4 days on the mountain. The mountain, over 12,000 feet at its highest point was a test of skill, physical conditioning and determination.
